Each year cowboys from across the Kimberley load up their saddles, chaps and wranglers and go rough riding. Some are local blackfellas born and bred in the saddle, others are young ringers from over east who come to muster through the dry.
These are the cowboys who ride day in and day out, mustering the backblocks of stations like Moola Bulla and Mt Pierre. Come rodeo time they’re all chasing the same dream… gripped by the rodeo fever of the wild north west.
Rodeo Road provides a window to the harsh and rugged environment of the Kimberley cowboy and the surprisingly gentle characters that inhabit this world.
